“Frisbee Factor” Part One

Even when we wish someone would change, too often our perception of that person can actually be part of what prevents them from changing. A couple days ago, I had a fantastic time playing ultimate Frisbee with some awesome new friends. As we played, I had a series of flashbacks to the first ultimate Frisbee…

“Good Enough”

Like almost everyone, I’ve often struggled with the thought, “Am I good enough?”  Deep down, the wiser part of me has always known that this thought is counterproductive, but until recently I couldn’t articulate why.  On my mission, I recognized I had a case of “toxic perfectionism.”  Yet somehow I couldn’t let go of my…

Plateau or Phase Change

Can any of us really tell when we’re truly changing?  I think that even when we recognize that we’ve had a change of heart, it’s nearly impossible to recognize that change of heart in the very moment that it’s happening.

Deadlines: Deathlines or Lifelines?

Some people think deadlines are positive and others think deadlines are negative.  Deadlines definitely have their pros and cons, and it seems there is a time and a season for when to have deadlines and when not to have deadlines.  But how can you recognize the difference?  How can you know whether it would be…

Analysis Paralysis

I never heard the phrase “analysis paralysis” until I was 19.  When it was explained to me, I thought, “Wait, you mean my problem that I’ve been trying to figure out for so many years actually has a name?!” I’m an over-thinker.  I’ve come to see overthinking as one of my strengths (I wouldn’t be…
